Yesterday I was finally able to start going through my mom's pictures. I took them out of all their hiding places and into plastic boxes. I was going to bring them home and start sorting through them and uploading them on my computer. This way I can put her pictures on flash drives and give them to others in the family. Plus I'm going to make momma a slide show with her favorite songs. The only thing is momma wouldn't let me bring the pictures home yet. She said that we would have to sit down and write things on the back of the pictures like names and dates. Plus she wants to sort them out her way. With me pulling out the pictures start even a bigger task for me. "Sigh" Today I will go over mom's house and start doing a major clean up. Throwing things away and more than likely bringing home a lot of it. Speaking of throwing things away, yesterday as I was cleaning out the top of mom's closet we found my step dad's old Shiners caps. Momma told me to throw them away, but I couldn't do it. They have been in her closet since he died 20 years ago, but was still in perfect condition. I'm going to get in touch with someone that is in the Shiners and see what I should do with it. (My step dad was 65 when he passed, so those hats are very old.) We also found my grandmother's old purse. She has been gone 34 years, but momma wouldn't let me throw the 1st thing away out of her purse. LOL! My grandmother had some old snuff, tiny bible, her watch, some pictures and a few important papers in her purse. Well, I guess I better get off here and go see what goodies I find at mom's house today. Hopefully I can start working on those pictures this Saturday. It's going take a few weekends to get this project done.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
